for changes in america's foreign policy. jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in lexington, virginia. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. romney was one of the president's critics on how he handled libya. subsequently that proved him right. the administration blamed the attacks in benghazi on a movie. romney has some strong words at a speech later this morning here in lexington. and implying some of the president's decisions were made for political reasons. in a major speech on foreign policy romney will attack mr. obama's leadership and set out his strategy, promising i'll affirm that my duty is not to my political prospects but to the security of the nation. romney will challenge the president's handling of the middle east saying it's time to change course. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share that hope. but hope is not a strategy. >> we'll win in florida. >> reporter: this speech comes after a weekend of campaigning in the battleground state of florida. romney a private man began showing a co
. mitt romney out of nowhere it seems, major address today on american foreign policy. take a listen. >> the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it is clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> so we'll hit the speech in depth here a lot on the middle east. but first, let me give you the big picture. as we mentioned, four weeks until the election, and we are seeing a possible shift in favor of mitt romney. check this out. this is what has happened since that debate last wednesday. this is gallup's daily tracking poll. a dead heat here when you look at the different numbers, a dead heat for the race for president, down from the five-point advantage for the pres
that governor romney plans to make a major foreign policy speech in the next few days. do the two of you think that the president has engaged in a coverup in his and the administration's escaped explanation of what happened at the u.s. consulate in benghazi? >> i will let others decide that. there are republicans and democrats in congress calling for an investigation as we need to have. response was slow. confused. inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist are attack. if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem it is part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is literally unraveling before our eyes on the tv screens. mitt romney is going to lay out a different vision for foreign policy. one that is a policy of american strength versus what i would articulate or say the president's policy is one of weakness. we are seeing the ugli fruits of the obama foreign policy unravel around the world on our tv screens. syria 20,000 dead people. iran closer to a nuclear w
. later today, mitt romney will make what is being billed as a major foreign-policy speech at the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. campaign advisers are positing a speech stark contrasts the president's view. what do you want the governor to talk about in his speech today? what kind of issues do you think need more attention from the candidates on the campaign trail? if you are a republican, give us a call. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. you can also catch up with us on a all your social media platforms. twitter, facebook, and e-mail span.org.al@c- good morning to you on this october 8. we want to start with that foreign policy speech that mitt romney is getting ready to make today. here are the headlines from "the washington times." read to you a little bit from the story, "mitt romney on monday will accuse the obama administration of fundamentally misunderstanding the threat of radical islam." host: that address is coming up at 11:20 today. we want to know what you think these can
your fear of the word "terrorism." obama, the white house, his whole foreign policy team, they're dealing with a completely bizarre scandal related to the attacks in benghazi, driven by the fact that they spent a week after they knew this was probably a terrorist attack insisting that it was all about an anti-muslim voe and had very little to do with terror. i'm not sure what their theory is. it's part of a broader pattern where the obama white house wants to continue george w. bush's anti-terror policies, even expand them in terms of drone strikes and so on without completely acknowledging what they're doing. but in this case, it's made them look ridiculous. it seems unnecessary. >> i've lived in the middle east and in libya. and nothing that you see is as it seems. you don't have any idea who these people r. they showed up with grenade launch easy and sophisticated weapons. but in libya today, everybody's got some. >> that's fine. you don't even have to say, this is definitely terrorism. you just don't spend a week saying, well, it's all about this video that was made in sout
. >>> an expert on american foreign policy and east asian affairs says the u.s. government is deeply concerned about the hostility over the dispute between japan and china. jeffrey bader served as a senior adviser to president obama for two years. >> no one in the united states, you know, less in japan and i hope in china wants to see shots fired over three or four uninhabited rocks in the east china sea. as long as we're concentrating on the sovereignty issue, we're probably not going to get anywhere. on the other hand, the resource issues can be addressed separately, without regard to sovereignty. >> bader says the u.s. government doesn't intend to mediate. he called on both sides to refrain from any action that could be considered a provocation. he argued the violent protests in china against japan's nationalization of the islands were counterproductive, unwise, and damaging to china itself. >> it made china look like an aggrieved third-world country that was not acting like an international community. >> japanese leaders say their claim to the senkaku islands dates back to 1895. chinese of
the moral clarity of a ww ii victory parade. americans' mixed feelings about race and foreign policy were shown for the first time uncensored by the o.w.i. we tend to think of the '50s as an era of eisenhower or golf but in reality the '50s was fraught with tensions. take the racial tension we see brought out to the fore in "the steel helmet" in a way it's not brought out in something like "bataan." i just don't understand you. you can't eat with 'em unless there's a war. then, it's difficult. isn't that so? that's right. you'll pay for a ticket, but sit in the back of a bus. isn't that so? that's right. a hundred years ago i couldn't even ride a bus. at least now i can sit in the back. maybe in 50 years, sit in the middle. someday even up front. there's some things you just can't rush, buster. you're a stupid man. you're the stupid joe. why don't ya' get wise, buster? (ripping sound) the commies loved it, loved it, it was in "the daily worker" and "people's world." up until a certain part of the picture. then i have these -- then they said this picture was financed by mcarthur.

, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exe
for foreign policy analysis. i wonder if the new leadership in china and the relatively new leadership in north korea provide us with opportunities whether we can create opportunities for the cooperation and engagement. >> i think for china that is definitely the case. obviously that is not new leadership either to china or to us. many of those individuals we have known and worked with in the past and they have all indicated not only their willingness to their desire to continue to develop this relationship in a positive way economically, politically, but for us in the defense department and in the security cents. in the north -- north korea we will have to see. we have remained very concerned about so many dimensions, and that is one of the reasons why we are so intent upon solidifying our posture, and that's the reason why we are looking at a number of steps in korea but i'm sure you are familiar with but i will remind you of what is going on. there we are making our presence, particularly the ground force presence putting it on a more permanent basis and more solid basis. that is wh
. eisenhower also was even-handed in its approach to his foreign-policy. when britain and france and israel invaded, took the suez canal our two oldest allies, our youngest allies general eisenhower insisted that they withdraw and he not only insisted that he organized or the secretary of secretary of the treasury a round, a run on the british pound which left the british with no alternative but to withdraw. domestically eisenhower's progressive conservative. he believed largely in a balanced budget and he was against deficit spending but he also believed the government had a positive role to play. the interstate highway system, which eisenhower -- which was eisenhower's brainchild. [applause] more money was spent on the intraday -- interstate highway system than the new deal from 1839 to 18 to 41 with zero impact on the budget because it was paid for through gasoline taxes. [applause] thethe st. lawrence seaway connecting the great lakes, opening the great lakes to traffic again had been on the drawing board since the administration of theodore roosevelt and eisenhower -- eisenhower took,
is that i'm professor of american foreign policy at the johns hopkins school of advanced international studies in washington. we teach graduate students. i have wonderful students from all over the world. students come from all over the world to study here because this is america, and they know that there is something special about america, and we wrote this book to try to make sure that in the future, students from all over the world and people and entrepreneurs and immigrants from all over the world will continue to come here, that this will remain a special place. >> host: tom, is, of course, the "new york times" columnist, pulitzer prize winner three times. how did you team up? >> guest: we're old friends and neighbors and we called each other and talked about the world, but we noticed something in recent years. we started talking about the world, but we ended every day talking about america. it was apparent to us that america, its future and vitality is the biggest foreign policy issue in the world. that's how we wrote the book together. >> host: "that used to be us" is the name o
president -- but president bush for the patronizing attitude that you have to teach me about foreign policy. i have seen what has happened in the past 17 months of your administration. secondly, please do not categorize my answers. leave the interpretation of my answers to the american people who are watching this debate. let me say further that no one has ever said those young men who were killed by the negligence of this administration and others ever died in shame. no one with a child who is 19 or 20 years old would ever say that about the loss of anybody else's child. >> representative ferraro, you have repeatedly said he would not want your son to die in an undeclared war for an uncertain cause. mr. mondale has suggested it might be necessary to erect a haunting for the problem. -- erecting a military force for nicaragua. under what circumstances would you be for military action? >> i would recommend it is for the protection of our nation and our neighbors. when mr. mondale referred to the quarantine of central america, a country in central america, what he was referring to was a last
leads to another. i have done a book called "the wiseman" about american foreign policy and the cold war and i wanted to take it to vietnam. i thought wow kissinger would be great in vietnam. i thought he was a great realist. who else was a great realist ben franklin. then i realize how he got that was probably because he was a scientist. he understand the single fluid of electricity. he would have thought you were a philistine if you didn't like science. i want to look at the magic and beauty of science. so i did einstein. it's ram done. >> gavin: is there a mandela organ di . >> or or gandhi. >> no, not right now. i wanted to look at the great computers, starting with a greatmatics, and then all the people who do the transition to the microchip, the internet. these are people who are unbelievably creative, but they knew to get back to where we started. not just to be entrepreneurs but to bring to scale to create institutions that would last. and so it's a little off the beaten path. it's not like another let's do mandela now. but it's something i'm deeply passionate about. >> gavin:
, but we're hearing that jim lehrer may ask a question related to foreign policy, libya, syria. do you think -- is that something mitt romney wants to have that discussion now? do you think mitt romney feels there is some room there for him to make some -- >> hard to say what the campaign is thinking, but if you haven't made your case on the economy, sufficiently well, when the economy is in this terrible of shape, i would think distracting from that is probably not a good strategy. let's do too many things not well. i would stay focused on the economy tonight. >> i do think mitt romney can, and if given the chance, will, successfully prosecute the case that what we're seeing is a lack of leadership domestically and in forbes polieign policy as we. we had big headlines, turkey shooting at syria, syria sending shells into turkey. that's big news. i wouldn't be surprised if jim lehrer throws a foreign policy question in. >> if i'm in obama, i would say throw me in the briar patch. that's a strong point for him. i think, unfortunately, the door is now open in a way on foreign policy that
. the questions tonight will be divided between foreign and domestic policy, but the specific topics were chosen by me. the candidates have not been told what they are. the rules -- for each question, there can be only a two- minute response, a 90-second rebuttal and, at my discretion, a discussion extension of one minute. a green light will come on when 30 seconds remain in any given answer, yellow at 15 seconds, red at five seconds, and then flashing red means time's up. there's also a back-up buzzer system, if needed. candidates may not direct questions to one another. there will be two-minute closing statements, but no opening statements. there is an audience here in the hall, but they have been instructed to remain silent throughout. the order of the first question was determined by the candidates in advance, and the first one goes to vice president cheney. vice president cheney, there have been new developments in iraq, especially having to do with the administration's handling. paul bremer, the former head of the coalition provisional authority, gave a speech in which he said that we have
results and you really talk about foreign policy as being two ideas for analogies at play. i would be interested -- i end of thinking you are a vietnam analogy guy. of munich -- that you wouldn't subscribe to that. am i reading you right? >> wet me say realism leads to the spatial representation of humanity's interests in the first place and that is how i discussed geography which dominates the rest of the book. you have to take them both together. you can that be a munich guy or vietnam guy. it is an analogy that tends to thrive when the country has been in peace and prosperity long enough. it feels it can intervene on behalf of subject and oppressed people around the world and doesn't think about the costs because it hasn't had to pay the cost for several decades. vietnam is about taking care of one's own and taking care of how things can go so horribly wrong. if you are a total vietnam person you will be such an utter realist that it will be too crew. you won't have anything beyond interest and a nation requires ideals for self identity to define itself. you will be intervening
of american foreign-policy and the postwar era, inspired me to. try to do the same with the vietnam war. this was going to be no easysh,d task. books on the warfield library shelf at the library shelf. so how can anyone say anythinget new about an event that has been studied so thoroughly. l what i discovered was that wein actually knew very little about what was happening in hanoi in the enemy's capital.parts, counterparts, especially those in the north, have received shockingly littleh attention. t how is it that wehe could know e much about the american side of the war and so little about the vietnamese side when a it just so happened that i entered graduate school at a time when archives from the former andent present communist world had begun to open their doors.ttempd athn's arm and support, i can tell the story through hanoi's eyes. i wanted to find answers to an questions that had eluded manage people. he was in charge in north vietnam, why did her struggle become an international conflict, and how do they manage to defeat the strongest overpower the world had ever seen? about b
to say that a rule of foreign policy, or diplomacy that i like to follow, that i believe should be followed, is get your objective straight before you start haggling about details. we had no choice. now, every generation since th then, was a great reform. and i cannot think of any other country where you could so definitely say that the evolution that we've seen in the last 30 years depend on the origin of one man, as the case. i certainly meant no other chinese who had the vision and the courage to move china into an international system, and to engage in reform and in instituting a market system. and the next leader came into office in the aftermath of tiananmen, and he spent the better part of his 12 years in office restoring china into the international system, and making china part of a genuine globalized system. hu jintao is the third leader that actually had to cover a china as part of a globalized system. with each generation, the style of leadership has become less personal. that is, mao was treated preferentially, almost as a d.o.e. appointment with mao whenever schedu
foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly, eureeka, this is so surprising, so amazing but rather people nod, yes, this is where we thought things were going. >> that is so fascinating. dana bash is live from our washington bureau. so, question, do some think friday's jobs report from the labor department, could that be an october surprise? >> sure. why not, carol? at this point, anything could be an october surprise. the fact is that maybe we've already seen it. maybe it was the tragedy in libya, the unrest in the middle east and how the candidates responded. maybe it was that infamous 47% remark that mitt romney had. maybe one or both of the campaigns has some dirty trick in their pocket that
will say about foreign policy when we meet next, because he said it was tragic to end the war in iraq. he will not tell us how he will end the war in afghanistan. and i will use the money we are no longer spending on war to pay down our debt and put more people back to work, rebuilding our roads and bridges and schools and runways and broadband lines, because after a decade of war, it is time to do some nation-building at home and do and put some folks to work at home. this is the choice we now face. this is what the election comes down to. over and over we had been told by our opponents that since government cannot do everything, it should do almost nothing, if you cannot afford health insurance, we hope you do not get sick, and that if a company is releasing toxic pollution into the air, that is the price of progress. you cannot go to college -- just borrow money from your parents. as i described last night, that is not who we are, not what this country is about. in america we believe we are in this together. we understand america is not about what can be done for us, it is about what w

, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that everybody ought to read saying u.s. abandoning hopes for taliban peace deal. just to go back to afghanistan. it says one of the expectations was that we could batter the taliban coming to the table to work out some kind of a deal. well, we all could've handed our government history books that would indicate over history that wasn't going to happen. so the idea that's a surprise that the taliban isn't going to suddenly sit down with us and work out a government and work alongside us should not come as a surprise to people, but apparently it is. now we walk away from that possibility. >> obviously afghanistan has a long history with the british, the soviets, everybody. and there's a famous saying, you can't want democracy for more than they want it for themselves. so we are not going to change the whole culture of afghanistan. it's not why we went there. we went to deal with al qaeda and terrorism and it became a nation-b
for calling on me. eric mcsaiden, institute for foreign be policy analysis. i wonder if the new leadership in china and the relatively new leadership in north korea provide us with some opportunities, whether we can create opportunities for further cooperation and engagement. >> well, i think for china that is definitely the case. obviously, that's not new leadership either to china or to us. many of those individuals we've known, we've worked with in the past, and they've all indicated their, not only their willingness, but their desire to continue to develop this relationship in a positive way. economically, politically, but for us in the defense department, in a security sense. in north korea we'll have to see. we remain concerned about so many dimensions of north korea, and that's one of the reasons why we're so intent upon solidifying our posture there. and, um, that's the reason why we're looking at, um, a number of steps in korea that i'm sure you're familiar with, but i'll just remind you of what's going on there. we are making our presence there, particularly our ground force pres
